AKRON -- A 38-year-old woman was robbed at an ATM machine Thursday afternoon and now police are looking for the suspect.

Authorities say the woman was at the First Merit Bank's ATM machine in the 700 block of North Main Street around 5 p.m. when the unidentified suspect approached on foot.

Police say the man, believed to be between 20-25 years old, walked between the victim's car and the ATM machine. As the cash was being dispensed, the suspect reportedly grabbed the money. When the woman slapped his hand, the suspect said, "I don't want to hurt you, just give me the money."

He snatched the $120 and fled on foot.

Anybody with information is asked to contact the Akron Police Department.
